BY YOUR EDITOR 


Tho Argus staff hopes that you, tho students, will enjoy 
reading the ȣ9 year book as much as we enjoyed writing and 
preparing it; that it will serve as a happy roninder of the 
class-room antics, the achievements of you and your fellow 
students and perhaps of the few embarrassing incidents which, 
though now you view with horror, may be recalled with a smile 
in years to come. 

However, as the year draws to a close, the importance 
of approaching final exams arises to overshadow these pleasant 
activities. We realize that though the fun provides an enjoy¬ 
able dessert which at times makes the rost of the meal bearable, 
it must romain in its proper, secondary place. 

If you are tempted to fold up and abandon this nine to 
four routine with homework in favour of a nine to five one 
with pay, compare your friends who have left school in search 
of more promising ways to spend their time and are now worse 
off than you because they have no money, no job, nor 
tho education to g.t work to thoso who are proparing to gradu¬ 
ate, and can look forward to enjoyment of university and the 
prospect of their choson career. 

As oditor I should like to take this opportunity to 
thank those who made this year's Argus possible. Special 
thanks to you, Mr. Montoith, our faculty adviser, who managed 
to keep your sanity intact while waiting for tardy reporters 
to submit classroom news as deadlines came and went and who 
had the courage to make us rewrite our assignments; to the 
classroom reps who had the patience to rewrite them; to Miss 
Brown and her students who helped with the typing; to Mr. 
Soteros and th6 photography club for the enthusiasm with 
which they attacked the Candid Camera contest which adds a 
sparkling touch to our year book; finally to Mr. Crane who 
gave us his full support and was always ready to assist us.

MESSAGE PROM THE PRINCIPAL 


May I, through this edition of the Argus, congratulate 
all of you who made possible this annual publication. To the 
staff and students who planned the first edition, we of our 
day are grateful. To the staff and students who planned the 
19^9 edition, we are grateful indeed. This publication repre¬ 
sents the democratic way, with co-operation of members of the 
student body and members of the High School staff. May it 
continue its democratic Ideals. 


Democracy is founded on the principle that nobody—no 
one person--knows boat what is best for everybody. Those of 
us within our school, who aro o;-ployed as leaders, many times 
give way to the opinion of those of you within our school who 
are in attendance as pupils. We are not the all-wise entity. 
We hope that we are still pliable by the voice of progress, 
of liberalism, and of that mighty freedom of expression. The 
democratic freedoms are yours and mine. They are our roads 
in our "pursuit of happiness". To attain that Nervanna or 
Valhalla there i3 the necessity of compromise, you with me 
and I with you, whether it be in home, in school, in business, 
or in government. 

To those of you who are undergraduates - in our school 
and to those of you who this year will graduate and pass on 
into the world of activity, we wish you well. May pleasant 
success be yours.

The Staff 

If one day you jcurney far, 

Up to a building on Highway three. 

It's Essex High that you'll soe there 

With the most interesting staff you'll ever see. 

Mr. Crane, honoured princi'PAL’ of our school. 

Is forever trying to keep students within the rule. 
Undone homework is one ’pet peeve* 

That causes many of us to grieve. 

A 'swift* meat salesman, M r . Meuser, 

Has little trouble in getting it cooked 
By the popular specialist, Mrs. Foster, 

But the 'sole* difficulty is getting it booked. 

If travelling east to Quebec and vicinities. 
Consider the pleasant addition. Miss Davidson; 

But, if living in Ancient Rome and its countries. 
More useful, of course, would be Mr. Sullivan. 

Miss Brown, who spends her summers recovering 
From her strenuous winters with us. 

Has been kept busy, her 'FOSTER* 3on praising, 

But Mr. Futton has his own 'writo’ to be famous. 

A former Air Force woman. Miss Rivers, 

Now concerns herself with figures and facts. 

While Mr. Haynes who has to remove slivers 
Was trained by the Air Force to divert attacks. 

While Mr. L angford trains the Atlases, 

Miss Chouinard encourages the girls 
To stretch very delicate muscles, 

And not to consider the curls. 



A fleet figure seen skiing any day 
Could easily turn out to be Miss Kennedy. 

With savoir-faire, and experience in sports, 

She has few troubles of any sorts. 

Mr. Gillies, the Chemistry teacher, 

Often wonders why students are so dumb; 

On the other hand, Mr. Sotero3, a feature, 

Thinks his protoges should never be glum. 

Mr. Furgal likes medics, money, and math. 

But when we can't 'get it', we're under his wrath. 

He's known for his prowess in all the sports, 

And also well-known for his 'knowledge' of F ords. 

Mr. Findlay, a musical agriculture instructor. 

Has trained many chickens to 'squawk' on key. 

Mr. Gnay, who imagines himself at homo on a tractor. 

Is a man whose wrestling you'll have to see. 

If bones or thoughts or out of place. 

Miss Murphy we call to set the pace. 

But for laughter and witty remarks 
Mr. Clifford and his ties are larks. 

Mr. Monteith, whose secret is age. 

Drills the history (of his relatives—J. Waldo) into us. 
Couldn't find Latimer to burn at the stake. 

Later found her hiding in Piccadilly Circus. 

An Assumption grad is Mr. Pattis on. 

Who has travelled far and wide; 

Another's name is Mr. Masterson. 

Who plays the cornet to elevate the mind. 

Miss Keane, our petite English teacher. 

Thinks Passive Verbs are for 'the birds', 

And Miss Kilpatrick, who dislikes, v.'orms. 

Is with the students on friendly terms. 

Mrs. Annett, a former student. 

Was once our Argus editor; 

Also Mr.. Harrow to this school went. 

Was the first Students' Council president.

VALEDICTORIAN'S ADDRESS 

Mr. Crane, members of the staff, honoured guests, ladies and gentlemen: 

t *» ri^Sc^o/Vonf^mSks 1 ?^ S^Sl^S S^s^ndary 

school'oducltion. On this important ^fhing, wo graduates^c^beon^^ 
honoured with an address ^ J from P his°Inspiring talk. Vo iti&U 

Siber for «ny ylars what he has said tonight. On behalf of the 
graduates, I should like to thank you, sir, for taking the time to 
speak to us this evening. 



Most of us entered Essex five years ago. We sat in the auditorium 
in which you are sitting tonight. Our principal told us then that some 
night in the future we would be upon this stage to receive our gradua¬ 
tion diplomas—the reward for several years of hard work. And now that 
night has come. Here at Essex High we have been very fortunate; we not 
only have had a modem school which satisfied our physical needs, we 
have had more than that. We have had teachers who devoted all of their 
time to our futures--teachers who stayed after school many nights to 
help us through difficult parts of our courses. Then in addition to 
their academic duties, our instructors have organized trips and dances, 
produced plays and operettas and coached sports of all kinds. At this 
school we have grown socially and intellectually; we have learned to 
accept responsibility and to respect others. 

We graduates are gathered here tonight, perhaps for the last time. 
Wq shall take with us many happy memories of our days at Essex High. 

We are happy tonight,' but we know that in the future we shall miss our 
teaohors and friends. We are grateful to all of you--paronts, teachers 
and friends who have made it possible for us to graduate tonight. 

Now that our high school work is finished, wo are looking forward 
to the future with enthusiasm. Some of us are going on to univorsity, 
others into training for a multitude of varying careers. Wo hope for 
success, but we aro also aware that we belong to the future, and that 
the responsibility for this nation will someday be ours. Wo know that 
our training here will stand us in good stead throughout our life.

Editor's Note: For two years it has been the policy of the school to 
hold a special graduation programme for the students receiving the 
Intermediate Certificate at the end of Grade 10. The following address 
was by the valedictorian on that occasion. 

THE INTERMEDIATE V.iLEDICTORIaN 'S MESSAGE 

After two yoars of hard work and studying, we have finally reached 
the first plateau of achievement in high school. This we will never 
regret. To attain our final goal, most of us will continue to strive even 
more resolutely for Junior Matriculation and perhaps Senior Matriculation. 

Recalling past experiences, we find that these years have been 
enlightening as well as enjoyable. The first day of high school wo felt 
nervous and awkward in such a large school. It was so easy to get lost-- 
as most of us soon discovered. Moving from room to room was strange and 
the absence of recesses was disappointing. We were divided into classes 
and alasj separated from old frionds. However, as the days went by, we 
established new friendships and each day had its exciting moment. We 
learned to accept responsibilities and became accustomed to newer, more 
mature methods of learning. 

* * . * ^ * . * •* . . ' * ' « 

Still, the credit should not go to us, alone. We owe more than can 
over be repaid to our teachers. They worked diligently each day trying 
to drum Latin or French verbs or the typewriter alphabet into our heads-- 
sometimes, just when we were trying to_ get ..our afternoon nap. To learn 
so many seemingly impossible things, we certainly had to have the best 
teachers to stimulate our dull minds. By,drawing from their own experi¬ 
ences they helped and encouraged us as well as taught us the fundamentals 
so that we would receive our intermediate certificates today. We are 
also very grateful to our parents who were always sympathetic when we 
needed their advice. I am sure all of us will agree that their financial 
assistance too was very important. 

Now we have joined the upper ranks of the school. More activities 
are open to us and we are still being presented with new vistas of learn¬ 
ing. 



7 . 


Receiving our Intermediate Certificates gives us satisfaction, and 
today will always be a memorable one in our lives. However, we must not 
oase up in our efforts and make this level our ultimate fulfillment In 
education. We all realize that we merely have constructed the foundation 
for higher studies which will present themselves to us this year and in 
the years to come.

VISIT OF AN EX-STUDENT 

0n K ay 12, the Grade 12 History classes were visited by Mr. Weldon 
Findlay, brother of the Vice-Principal of this school. Mr. Findlay is a 
graduate of Essex High and 0. A. C. The purpose of his visit was to 
acquaint us with the various tribes, tongues*and customs of Nigeria—his 
, ‘7® * >or the P ast eight years. Nigeria is about the size of Ontario, and 
yot n.3.s more than twice the population of Canada. Foup hundred inches of 
rain fell there in some areas compared with forty inches’in. Canada. 

We learned that the country has three political divisions, of which 
ine main tribes and languages are Hausa, Yoruba and Ibo. 

Mr. Findlay also spoke to us concerning the economical, educational, 
and -political development of Nigeria. This development has been very 
rapid since the end of World War II and in October, I960, Nigeria will 
r-ave complete independence from Britain and becomes a member^of the Bri¬ 
tish Commonwealth of Nations. 

1 

• Mr. Findlay's talk was throughly enjoyed and we hope that he will 
visit us again on his next trip-home.

FORT.' :r GRADUATES 


Betty Chambers of Cottam is this year graduating from Toronto 
University. She plans to attend 0. C. E. this summer and will teach at 
Leamington High School. 

Gerald Eode, a graduate of four years ago, has this year graduated 
from the course in electrical engineering at Queen's. He has accepted 
a job in Ottawa. Ronald Gerrard, a graduate of the same class, has gra¬ 
duated from the Business Administration Course at Assumption and will 
become an apprentice in an accountancy firm. 

Donna Michael of Essex this spring graduated from Western University 
in her favourite field of music. She has been engaged to teach in one 
of Windsor's Collegiates and like Betty, will attend 0. C. E. this summer 

Jim Forden, who took only Grades 12 and 13 at Essex, but whose home 
is at North Ridge, has graduated from Assumption this spring. He is 
talking about taking postgraduate work. 

Possibly one of the most publicized of our former graduates is Mary 
Lou Dresser. This year she graduates from the Honour Physical Education 
course at Western University with a distinguished athletic record behind 
her. She has played all four years on the inter-collegiate basketball 
team, this year as captain. She has also been active in other games and 
in track and field contests. Mary Lou will no doubt make a fine Phys. 
Ed. instructress in some lucky High School. 

HOWLERS

--On potato itself it starts as a purplish discoloured area whic 
in time turns the potato into a rotten mess. 

--It attacks the vines in dry weather as a little brown mess and 
in wot weather a sloppy wet mess. On tomatoes they turn almost immediate 
ly into a wot mess. 

How Dried ^ilk is Prepared 

The milk is sprayed on an c-ternally heated rotating drum and a knife 
scrapes it off as dried milk.

SEQUEL TO RUDYARD KIPLING'S 
"THE BALLAD OP EAST AND WEST" 


Carol Chambers HE 

Days and nights slipped quickly by 
The- Guides were in despair. 

Their plans had reached the Border Thieves 
They knew not how or where. 

Till late one night—when moon shone bright. 

And stars winked at their play. 

The Colonel's son saw Kamr.l's son 
Trod stealth»ly cross the way. 

And then he stole to a recess dim. 

Whore lurked the hunted prey; 

Those plans, so cautiously pursued, 

Meant death to England's Guides] 

The triumph of the Border Thieves 
Upon this mission rides. 

The Colonel's son had followed him 
To a place where guile abides. 

Ho know who stoic the treasured plans 
And spoke to him these thoughts: 

"Thy father's crafty plans have failed. 

Two wrongs ne'er made a right. 

My faith by you has been destroyed 
Thou must ride out to-night." 

"I cannot take your life," said ho, 

"Though mine rides otit with thee. 

I loved thee as a brother true, 

What hast thou done for me?" 

Oh East is East, and 'West is West, 

And never the twain shall meet, 

Till earth and sky stand presently 
At God's groat Judgment seat. 


NEW USE OF LATIN 

Noluisse dream com.? true 
It's really unforge table-. 

Everything nolerat to do 
Is really most regrettable.. 

Noloris quite irregular too 
With parts that really baffle you. 

Evcrythirg nice like snakes and mice is nolo* 

When nolor IS non, it's very rare 
It never draws attention. 

All of the students sit and glare 
It's liko the eighth declension.' 

But If you think that you don't care 
You'll find you'll get a aotention. 

Wait till you see that noluisti. 

Oh, Brother J J .* J 


There's a page with nolo all around it. 

Just too bad we found it. 

We just couldn't find nolet out, 

When noles here we cannot learn a thing. 

And bells refuse to ring 
There's a real alarm about it.

SLOW DOWN 

Since tie beginning of the twentieth century, the pulse of the 
world has increased greatly. Never before in history has there been 
such a turmoil. Time and its partner. Speed, have influenced people's 
lives more than anything else. 

Because of this, the school life of a student is not what it should 
be. When the pupil arrives at school, that powerful dictator. Speed, 
reigns throughout the day. In the morning, just a few moments are given 
to opening exercises. Sometimes, because of many announcements, these 
are omitted since there is not enough time to give to both. The loud 
bells, faithful servants of Time, announce the beginning and ending of 
each short, hurried period. Between periods, everyone rushes in the 
halls, jostling each other, occasionally causing serious accidents. 
Sufficient time is given for lunch, but pupils must rush to obtain a 
seat. At the end of the day, there is pushing, squeezing, and shoving 
as the students put on their coats hurriedly so they will not miss their 
bus which will not wait. 

So much speed is unhealthy, creating unsteady nerves. The day 
should be peaceful, so that learning and studying may be accomplished 
in the proper atmosphere. There are too many "fill-in" periods. If 
these were eliminated, the important periods could be longer, and thus, 
more beneficial to both teachers and students. Teachers should not rush 
through the course so they can be at a certain page in the book on a 
certain date. This only makes the work more incomprehensible to the 
pupils. The whole school system should slow down in order that a higher 
standard of education may be obtained. 

Of course, this "Speed" idea does not apply to school only. The 
whole world is in a mad scramble. Although there are now more labour- 
saving devices than a hundred years ago, the general population is more 
rushed tha it should be. Something must be done. People should slow 
down, enjoy life, and live longer. If not, disaster shall come to the 
human race.

FASHIONS 

Since the beginning of time, men have scorned the fashions of 
women. Perhaps the first cave man reviled his 3pouse for her newest 
dress. Times have not ChangedJ Women's fashions are still as fluctuat¬ 
ing and laughable as everJ This is especially evident in their choice 
of summer and winter garb. In the heart of summer, the impractical 
women wear furs up to their ears and the thickest possible dresses. 
Eskimoes have nothing on these females I 

But wait until winter comesJ You haven't seen anything yet. It 
is now that our unpredictable females don their flimsiest, frilliest 
summer attire and promenade through snow-drifts up to their knees, wear¬ 
ing toeless nothings called shoes. 

However, lot us loavc this distressing subject of vromen's dress 
and turn to the ever-practical men. As the sun pours its hottest rays 
upon the already scalding earth, our noble men disrobe (as much as is 
permissible) and absorb the health-giving radiance of ultra-violet rays. 
When snow begins to fly, our fine specimens of humanity don their wa.rmest 
apparel to brave the winter's icy blasts. 

May it never be said of a man; ho is as fickle as a womanj

FIRST HECK IN HOME EC. 

Richard Barkosky HE 

"Is it really that bad, Mrs. Foster?", asks Miss Novice Homemaker, 
as the inglorious results o-f messy travail are put to the acid test. 

The answer is a definite positive', for a glance at Mrs. Foster's pain- 
curled countenance will soon scatter the remaining fragments- of hope so 
expressly evident in the young inventor's eyes. After all, the first 
effort at anything doos not always produce a glorious' success, does it? 
No doubt our future recipe-trader will soon master the fine arts of 
making delicacies such .as Spanish chili-sauce, even though at present 
it has the appoarance of chopped up carrot-tops. The scene pictured 
here will undoubtedly be followed by one of gentle but firm advice, whici 
will improve the quality of the product while encouraging the learner to 
greater efforts. 




INDEPENDENT THINKING 


15- 


John and Larry drove with prido down the street in the shiny rod 
car which John's father had just bought. 


"/ire you nervous, J hn?" inquired Larry, "It's something for jrour 
"Old Man" to let y:u have the car alone!" 


"Dad's never mean about anything like this; he trusts mo and I trust 
him!" replied John. Although John did not appear to be nervous, ho actu¬ 
ally was. 

"Look at those dames over there," exclaimed Larry. "Honk the horn; 
maybo we can pick thorn up. I know the one in the shorts." 


Obligingly John hit the horn and pulled over to the curb. Tho two 
girls walked over to tho car. 


"Hi, Larry, who's your cuto boyfriend?" asked Carol Haney. Sho was 
the one that drew their attention because sho wore a very tight fitting 
sweater and very brief shorts. 


"Oh, I am sorry. Carol Haney, this is J ;hn Zack," introduced Larry. 

"And this is Lori Lane," replied Carol. "Lori is from New York. 

This is her first trip to Carolina." 


"Glad to know you b:th," retorted John. 
"How about a ride?" requested Carol. 


> 


"Sure enough, hop in," said a very eager Larry. 

The two girls got in tho car and they sped off d'-wn tho road. 

Waving and honking t people they know, they passed through the city at 
a moderate spe^d. 

When they reached tho open highway, Larry said, "Step on it, Johnnie 
Bey, let's see how fast she'll go." 


"No, thanks," said John, "I don't want to get in any trouble the 
first time I've got this car out." 

"Well, I like that," commented Carol, ,: Wo comic for a joy ride and 
don't even get a thrill." 

"If you don't like it, maybo I'd bettor toko you back to town," 
retorted John. 

"Maybe y u'd bettor," said Carol in a nasty tone. 

J hn turnod the car around and drove back to town. He pulled up 
to the exact spot where he mot the girls. 

"Here you are, 'Hot Rodders'," joked John. 

Tho two girls got out of tho car, and. Larry followed them. 


:, I njvor did like these quiet drivers,” said Larry, as he and the 
two girls walked away. 

John folt badly, but he realized it was better to lose a friend 
than, to lose the confidence of his father.

LOST , 

X have always experienced a very deep sense of pity for the child 
who suddenly realizes that ho is lost. In a single second, he changes 
a grSm-up ^venturer and a self-assured explorer, to a crying,

lomS simply smile knowingly, while others rmtotopto the throes of 
thought, neither aware of, nor concerned about, the lest chll . 

Such a child appeared recently on the fourth floor of a well-known 
, t t s toro Thoroughly terrified, ho began to cry with gre^t, 
heart-tearing sobs. Ho'fSund himself surrounded by hurrying shoppers, 
SSd tired c^rK. Tearfully, he 1 deed up at the towering fig^es. 

Then sobbing wildly, ho began to run up and down tho al| or 
"Mommy! Mommy!~ Whore are you?" As he paused to listen kePffullj _ 
his mother's voice, his straining ears were greeted only with the voices 
S SS shoppers, annoyed sales girls, and tho shrill ring of a hun¬

"Miss! I've b oon waiting for five minutes!" 

"Yes, madam, - - > madam. 

"That will be a dollar-f ifty, madam. 1 

a thousand voices pounded on his ears, as the little boy stood 
helplessly in the throng of Christmas shippers. 'Suddenly ho saw a 
flrurc familiar tc children everywhere. Joyfully, he trotted over to 
jovial-looking man clothed in brilliant rod. With his hope-filled, 
tear-stained face uplifted, ho tug^ou at the man s coat. 

"Yes, sonny. *And what can Santa do for yon?--What-you haven't 

been crying, have you? That's no way to act at Christmas. 

"I'm lost," said the lad timidly, 

"What's y<,ur name, lad?" 

"l^r name's Butch Hondwicks, 'n I live at fivo-fifty-thwoo Carlton 
Dwivc." 



17 . 


This last speech was uttered quite laboriously by Butch, who, like 
Tany other four—year olds, could not pronounce his 1, r | s". 

Santa chuckled wisely, and relayed this information with somewhat 
better pronunciation to the public-address announcer. 

Contented, Butch climbed up into the huge, red lap, and with a new 
note of important authority in his shrill voice, told Santa what he wanted 
for Christmas. He did not forget to add important directions to help the 
'old gent' find his way from the chimney to the Christmas tree. 

Suddenly, his face lit up as he 3aw his mother making her way to¬ 
ward him through the crowds of shoppers. Half laughing, half embarrassed, 
she thanked the 'merry old soul' for caring for her youngster. 

With a reluctant "Good-bye", Butch grasped his mother’s hand and 
skipped happily beside her. Now that he was safe once more, he was able 
to tell his mother of his exciting adventure. Much of his story was 
exaggerated, and parts of it were completely untrue. Can anyone blame 
Butch for such little lies? ks he told his mother, "I reallv wasn't 
afraid, well--not much and anyhow--now I'm not lost anymore.'*'

PROSPECTING FOR GOLD 

"Why, Marjorie," exclaimed Mrs. Duncan, "what do you mean?" 

"I mean exactly what I say, Mother. Now that I've finally graduated 
I'm not going to waste any more time...." 

"Marjorie," interjected her mother, slightly scandalized, "surely 
you don't consider your college education a waste of time?" 

"Please don't interrupt, Mother," countered the unruffled girl. 

The time for action has arrived. I am going prospecting for gold." 

The following day Marjorie firmly established herself in an apart¬ 
ment in the Big City. a.s she did not have to begin working in her 
Uncle's business concern until the next week, she was now able to settle 
down to serious prospecting. Peering curiously out of one of her tiny 
windows, she spied a tall, handsome gentleman ascending the steps of the 
apartment building. 

"What luck.'" she murmured, wondering if he were the owner of the 
p; te Cadillac which was drawn up in splendid array on the opposite 

3ide of the street. Putting on her most winsome smile she left her room 
and- hurried to the elevator. 

When she reached the main floor, she glanced hastily around her. 
i0 her delight she saw the form of the handsome young gentleman standing 
motionless bes de the door. Elated by her early success in finding such 
7 n elegant specimen, she slowly, purposefully walked past the unsuspect¬ 
ing victim and entered a nearby telephone booth. There she placed a 
mythical call to Nowhere and talked animatedly for some time’to No One. 


Then, leaving the phone booth, she let her white lace handkerchief, 
her initialled handkerchief, flutter carefully to the floor. This done, 
she, dreamily visualizing a handsome man, mink stoles, diamonds and 
Cadillacs, returned to her room. 

After about ten minutes had crawled by, she heard a hesitant knock 
at her door. There he stood, holding a white lace initialled handkerchie. 
in his hand. Before long they were chatting together as if they had 
known oach other all their lives. 

"And what does your father do?" inquired Marjorie in response to hi.' 
last question. 

"Oh, didn’t you know? He ’3 the janitor here." 

Marjorie swallowed hard but recovered her scattered wits quickly. 
"How nice," she said, thinking pensively that she had discovered some¬ 
thing more valuable than mere gold.

FOREST FIRE 

Roaring flames, dense black smoke and showering sparks indicated 
only one thing, another forest had mot with its most deadly enemy-- 
fireJ A sky filled with more red and orange than that of the setting 
sun could be clearly distinguished for many a mile. The humanly unbear¬ 
able heat forced every living creature from its picturesque forost home. 
Animals of every size and description, from the smallest squirrel to the 
giant moose, rushed frantically dido by side toward the sanctuary of the 
river. 

Lashing tongues of fire leaped from tree to tree and devoured every¬ 
thing in their path. Delicate summer flowers, snow white lilies and 
velvety green moss lost all their heavenly beauty as the murderous flame: 
spread over them. An almost suffocating smoke replaced the tangy scent 
of pine which once had perfumed the forest. Sturdy old evergreens met 
their blazing enemy and were decisively defeated. 

A gentle but dangerous breeze from the south-west fanned the red- 
hot flames and caused them to soar into the smoke-filled sky. Bubbling 
riverlets, brimming with crystal-clear water, seemed to vanish mysteri¬ 
ously. Fiery, blistering heat changed the emerald vegetation into a 
deadly, shrunken, brown mass. 

Meanwhile, the attentive eyes of a forest ranger, who was posted at 
a desolute look-out station, spotted the rising column of black smoke. 
This sign of danger was much too familiar. The ranger knew that he had 
to act promptly, and so without a moment's hesitation, he graphically 
plotted the position and notified the efficient fire fighters. 

A once lonely forest path became a bustling hi^iway less than an 
hour after the dreaded alarm had been sounded. Volunteers armed with 
shovels, axes and rakes, marched swiftly toward the disaster area, as 
they had done so often before. Those allies of the forest did not look 
forward to the days and nights of the troacherous toil which lay ahead. 




Hour aft or la ur the coimnandlng sh uts f tho rancors linglcd with 
tho s:-und of r arin<~ fire cull to hoard, Thcro was absolutoly no time 
frr r^st . Vcary, black-faced nion worked frantically trying to extinguish 
the surging flames. 

Within a few short days a vneo picturesque landscape lay in smaldor- 
incr ruin. The forest, which had boon a century in the making, died after 
a week’s time. Was it the forgot fulness of s.-k, car o less camper or 
%j r -thor Nature herself wh snatched their homes from tho f rest inhabitants? 
Whatever the fatal cause,, lifolossn^ss and destruction replaced what cnce 
had b~on a wealth-producing timberland.

SENSATIONAL NEWS ' 


Hoar ycl Hear yet Tho Hudson Bay C mpany is expanding rapidly 
«?ivinc Canada s -m,.thing t be proud of: tho • wnorship f one of many 
trading units that have existed f ^r tw. hundred and eighty-oiaht years. 
Its historic ass ciati»ns have served t establish tho fact that t -day 
it is a groat, modern organization, as up-t -date as a 1959 car. 


The c mpany has progressed by leaps and b unds since tho early ‘-i-ays 
of the sparse p'st, so that it n w includes six largo department stores 
in operation in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, anc. 
Victoria. Those stores doing tun million t twenty ailli n dollars 
worth f business annually display not only fine furs--oho ..ri^inal 
objoct f tho c mpany»s f unding—but thousands of items from jewellery 
t' kitchenware, and from furniture to food. Throe of tnese six stores 
foaturo large triple-decker parkados for tho motorist customers• 


The founder would hardly recognize his Id com; any since its, aoors 
have been ooened to "modernity 1 . Furthermore, in the back country there 
are still one hundred anc. eighty-two active trading posts. In tee pas , 
tne managers, completely isolated from civilization, were expected to be 
everything from doctor to priest for the conuriunity. Now they live com¬ 
fortably in well-designed houses, and are supplied with all their- 
needs—magazine3, books, vitamin pills, even scientii ically p.epait- 
dists. To keep in touch with these people the company has six uig 
cargo ships and three bush planes, as well as boats, barges, trac or- 
trains, tr\ick 3 and snowmobiles. The old ‘moccasin telegrapn mas 
replaced by the "radio-telephone". 

The U. S. S. H. owns the largest fur trade, but Canada's collection 
of wild furs is the second largest and known the world over. Actually, 
one-third of the one hundred and eighty-two trading posts^are fully 
stocked retail stores. The company financially assists minx rancers— 
from the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast, from tne forty-ninth parallel 
to the Mexican Gulf—to become established to buy furs, to insure tnem 
and to sell them. 


Another important factor is that this company nas a flag of its own. 
It is the "Red Ensign" with the initials d. 3. C. in the lover r iJat-;-nd 
comer. It is the only private company which is allowee to ado^t tie 
British flag for its own use. The coat of arms displays two elks sup¬ 
porting four beavers, surmounted by a fox with the slogan. Pro Pel- 
Cutem" — i: A Skin for a Skin". 


Behold the Hudson's 
gone modern!

A TRIP TO TEE ROYAL WINTER PAIR 


Last November a group of the Grade 12 boys, accompanied by Mr. 
Findlay, enjoyed an authorised holiday from school to see tin Royal 
Winter Fair in Toronto. Travelling in cars we were able to make a side I 
trip to the Ontario Agricultural College in Guelph. Here we were treate; 
to a lunch and a tour of ‘the physical education building, soils labora¬ 
tory and campus. This visit proved interesting 'enough to sway some of 
the group to think of furthering their education here on graduation from; 
Essex High. 

On arrival in Toronto we were not long in locating our hotel and 
then set out to see the bright lights of the big city. This didn’t 
prove too entertaining to some of us, so to furthor our education we 
attended the cinema and saw tho screen play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"-- 
very, very entertaining] 

The next morning we were all off to the fair. It was the opening 
day of this largest agricultural show in the world held under one roof. 
Accompanied by visitors from far and near, wo crowded into the coliseum I 
and stables to see the many animals. There were pigs, goats and sheep 
waiting to be judged. Exhibits of beef, dairy cattle and horses from 
the United States made, competition with the Canadian herds very keen. 

In its own little niche was a miniature fair for the very young, featur¬ 
ing various kinds' of--poultry/ and baby animals. 

On entering the west wing of the coliseum we noted a profusion of 
flowers «of every variety and colour. Over our heads hung exhibits of 
the fields and gardens,’ —grains, seeds and vegetables all of different j 
kinds and sizes. 

After a quick look at the large display of tools and gadgets for 
farm use, we made for the lunch counter and then to the horse show. 
Believe me, it was sure good to sit down and rest for awhile. The mat¬ 
inee performance featured horses from Germany, Cuba, Mexico and United 
States in jumping competition against tho. e of our own country. With 
the close of the 'horse show our day at the fair vras over, and it had 
proved both entertaining and educational. That evening some of us boys 
wont to see a hockey game at the Ted Reeve’s Memorial Arena. While it 
was not H. H. L. it was a good, fast-moving gane--a great climax to an 
eventful day. . 

The next morning before leaving for home, Mr. Findla^r to.ok us on a 
short sight-seeing tour of the city. We saw the Parliament Buildings 
and went to the top of. the Bank of Commerce Building, the highest in the 
British Empire and visited the Royal Ontario Museum. 

From beginning to end the whole trip was a delightful experience. 




AGRICULTURE CLASSES VISIT LEAMINGTON 

On January fifth of this year, Mr. Findlay took the Agriculture 
classes to the "Essex County Associated Growors" convention being held 
in the Leamington Arena. There we found many interesting displays. 
Including a fruit grader, soil block maker, basket companies, spray equi’ 
mont, and planting oquipment. 


23 


In the auditorium Dr. Zitnak from 0. A. C. spoke on "The Problem 
of Market Quality in Early Potatoes", while "Your Fruit and Vegetable 
Extension Service" was Jack Cutcliffe’s topic. H. B. Boyce of the Harrow 
Experimental Farm spoke on and showed slides about the "Major Peach Insect 
Problems ". 

For all of the students it was an enjoyable experience, and we hope 
the school year will provide other such outings.

OUR TRIP TO NEW; YORK 

There once were 3I4. Grade 12 students who were afraid that they 
weren’t going to have anything spectacular to remember about their high 
school days. Not wishing this to happen, Mr. Crane and the school board 
graciously consented to let these same students go off on a holiday to 
New York accompanied by Mrs. Findlay and their history teacher, Mr. 

Monte ith. 

Our quiot, well-behaved little group left Essex October 18, at 7:l5 
p.m. This in itself was an event for it was the first time in 25 years 
that the train had stopped at Essex. After fond but, in some cases, rather 
damp farewells, we scrambled abourd the train and clambered over seats 
and suitcases to got one last look at home sweet home. Then we settled 
down to some serious business--eating. Our dear mothers, seeming to fear 
cither that we wouldn’t get enough to eat (parish the thought) or that 
wc would get food poisoning from all that foreign food, had packed enough 
lunch to last the whole trip. 

After this, the conversations settled down to a quiet roar until 
about 10 o’clock. Then the fun began. A man started coming through the 
coach passing out pillows. Everyone was commenting on how thoughtful 
•N. Y. C. was of its passengers, until the man came back again and wanted 
35/ a piece from us. About one-half the students then decided that they 
could sleep quite well without a pillow. Jim Hatch, one of the more 
entorprising of the group, decided to flip a coin—double or nothing-— 
for a pillow. Surprisingly he won. Dave Brush also tried to do this 
following the "Hoads I win, tails you lose" policy. The pillow man--not 
a very intelligent individual--thought for a full two minutes before he 
decided that it wouldn’t be to his advantage and passed gratefully out 
of our coach. 

We soon learned that Mr. Montoith’s advice, that our money would 
have been well-invosted, was true. This discovery brought about some 
strange events. You could be resting comfortably, got up to got a drink 
of water, and return to find that your pillow had disappeared. 

When this happened to Bill Keane, he took Immediate action. After 
turning and accusing Mr. Monteith of the theft he grabbed the latter’s 
pillow and bounded up the aisle with our dignlfiod history teacher in. 
hot pursuit. Mr. Monteith was able to retrieve his pillow and send Bill 
back'to his seat disconsolate. Bill then decided that Jim Rajki was. 
hotter than nothing at all and so proceeded to use Jim as a sort of im¬ 
provised cushion.

25 . 

Tuesday morning, after again being late, we rattled and swayed across 
Manhattan in a subway to South Perry, where we caught a boat for the Sta¬ 
tue of Liberty. After taking an elevator to the base of the old girl, wo 
followed a narrow spiral staircase for 152 feet until we reached the two- 
foot six-inch eyes. With heads swimming and knees wobbling we began the 
descent and reached the ground wondering if it had boen worth thG effort. 

After lunch at an automat (another word for a madhouse) we arrived 
in force at the Jimmy Dean show. Although Mr. Monteith said he couldn't 
see the stage for ’’all that paraphernalia", the show was enjoyed by all. 

Our next stop was the Museum of Modern Art, but on seeing that the 
admission was seventy-five cents, Mr. Monteith decided that we wouldn't 
linger. Prom here, with everyone complaining that he was dead on his 
feet, we headed for the docks to see tho Queen Elizabeth and the lie do 
Prance. Our chaperones then decided to turn us loose to do some shopping 
and everyone immediately forgot his aching feet and walked for another 
hour or so. 

After walking all this time we didn’t feel much like a concert, 
but that evening the fifth balcony of Carnegie Hall was honourod by our 
presence. Jennie Tourel was an excellent singer, but all Jim Hatch could 
do was ask, "Can I go and eat now, sir?" 

No one slept much that night, what with packing and parties, so it 
was a tired group who dragged themselves to Grant Central Terminal at 
seven the next morning. Bob Watt got paler and paler every minute, and 
by the time he boarded the train he was as white as a sheet. 

The scenery from the outskirts of New York to Schenectady was 
really beautiful, but no one got to see much of it for Bill Keano and 
several others had purchased flutes in Chinatown and Bill proceeded to 
hold classes of instructions—"How to Play the Piute in One Easy Lesson". 
For five hours we he\rd the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers in every possi¬ 
ble key until it was coming out of our ears. 

The erstwhile travellers who arrived back at Essex on schedule at 
9:00 p.m, Wednesday are as follows : 

Sandra Steward, Beverly Hensman, Joyce Mortimorc, Martha Martin, 

Carolyn Milne, Marion Grondin, Margaret Jessop, Carol Garrott, Mary

BADMINTON 

Almost evury student in the school took part in badminton this past 
year. Tho badminton club started playing early in October and continued 
through until almost Easter. The badmint >n team concentrated its efforts 
in the month precoding tho W. 0. S. S. A. tournament which was hold this 
year on April 13. A few of the gym classes were devoted to badminton, 
but tho school-wide t urnaments wore held during the special intramural 
periods which were instituted this year. 

Tho playing of badminton servos two functions in tho extra-curricular 
activities of the students. It offers keen competition for those who 
enjoy competitive sports and aro physically and mentally able to play 
them. It* is also one of the few co-educational sports which can be 
learned easily and on joyed by pooplo ;f even tho least athletic ability. 

It is one of the few sports that are learned in high school which can be 
played by the individual once he has left school and i3 in need of some 
form of* regular physical recreation. The senior students played Fridays 
after school and tho grade 10 students playod Wednesday mornings from 
7:30 a.m. to 8:30 n.m. 

The badminton team has functioned as a competitive unit end as such 
participated in three separate tournaments.. Some 20 to 30 competitors 
took part in the annual novice badminton tournament at tho Hunter in 
Windsor. Later some eight team members journeyed tc Kennedy Collegiate 
in Windsor where our friendly rivalry with tho Kennedy team was renewed. 
Six team members to -k a trip to Crown Point High School to view somo of 
the preliminary matches of the United States Open Badminton Tournament 
where we had an jp ;ertunity to see the v rld's champion players in 
action. 

Tho highlight of tho team's activities is always the V/. 0. S. S. A. 

tournament. We have come close in tho last tw-' years to winning a 

championship but have not yet had enough tc xinish in top pc sit-ion. 

Wo hope that .up turn will come within a few short yoars. This year’s 
record vras as follows :

Spccdball, a very interesting and exciting sprrt was introduced * 
t. the pirls this year. It combined the fundamentals of football, soc c-

The game proved to be enjoyable and we hope it is continued In the J

W. 0. S. S. A. TRACK AND FIELD 

On Saturday, May 23, Essex produced the best showing in W. 0. S. S.l 
ever made by an Essex squad by compiling a total of 26 points compared to 
2 of the previous year. 


The senior boys excelled, with Roger Ellis placing sixth in the 330, 
Jesse Gerard fifth' in the Discus and Richard '7ard sixth in toe Open Mile. 


The intermediate boys compiled the most points, with Henry Labrecque 
third in the 330, John Wilcox second in the Broad Jump, and Mike PattersO- 
sixth in the High Jump. Also the relay team of Labrecque, Sinclair, 
Wilcox, and Patterson placed sixth. 

Although the o u nior boys didn't place in any event, Prpich, Merritt, 
Scott, and Jones should be commended for their efforts. 

Considering that there are only three open events in the Girls*^ 
Division, the girls also kept up the standard. Elaine Lawhead placed 
third in the softball throw and Haomi Colenutt miss qualifying for the 
75 yd. dash by 1/10 of a second.

And often puts his clothes on inside outI 

MARJORIE ( BOOSE ) AND THE ■ BIRDS

Upon the garden seat, 

The birds are busy picking crumbs 
She scatters at her feet.

And sing ri Maggie! Maggie! Marjorie! 

MAMMA 1 S HELPER 

Judy Carr is a little girl; 

She helps her mother cook. 

And when her mamma makes a cake, 

Judy looks and looks and looks! 

KAREN (CLARK) AND RON ( BARNETT ) 


Karen and Ron went up the hill, 

To fetch a pail of water; 

Ron fell down and broke his crown, 

And Karon came tumbling after, 

■THE FIRST TINY TREE 

Pat Paquette took a tiny tree 
And trimmed it with a star, 

To please little Bcb Gampeau 
In his bed afar. 

IF I WERE A LADY 

If Cecilia Brett wore a lady, a very old lady, 
A crotchety lady with creeks in her knees, 
She'd walk out on Sundays, or oven on Mondays, 
Whenever weather was friendly to mo.

10 C 

Oh, many tilings cause me to think. 

From a Science exam tc a Home Ec. sink. 

But what really worries me. 

Is how the dear old school would be 
Without the best grade, grade 10C. 

And oh, how tho teachers groan and sigh 
As good old 10C passes thorn by. 

And, yet from the comer of every eye 
Is a wary glance and an uttered "Oh my;" 

Tho room should be quiet, still as a‘ mouse. 

As still (almostJp as a deserted h >uso. 

But this house must be vory much alive. 

Or oiso near-by is a largo boo-hivcj 

The tcachor has cotton stuffed in his oars. 

As early deafness is what lie fears.’ 

10C has some blondes—Jackie, Mary, and Joan, 
Their hair has a lively golden shocn. 



And yet, tho teacher’s very keen 
On pulling it out, 

It «s just a thought. 

But then, why not? 

The clay has boon vory trying since Jim and Tom 
Have asked him what compos os a bomb/ 

How whore do people got such ideas? 

Wot from Ruth, who novor sees 
The bad in things. 

ihid who arc the girls in the light brown hair? 

Why,^ it's Carol and Lucy sitting thoro. 

And .acre is Kathy, another of the class. 

She koops us supplied with plenty of laughs. 

Bov and Gail are quieted now; 

They arc sitting there with a wrinkled brow. 

And thoro are Prank and 3ob with their books. 

The teachers are giving them dirty looks. 

You seo, no ono has his homework done. 

Can you believe that? Not a single ono/ 

Not Dari, nor Judy, nor oven mo. 

Can you guess why? Bocauso, this is 10C. 

Tho bell has gone, there goes John, 

John Lyons, that is; Oohn Ford is close by. 

They pass the teacher, and hear a sigh. 

■ Now I wonder why,! 

Perhaps they saw Enid coming last, 

The rest of tho class is at least a <bit fast. 

Tho room is full, the roar is loud. 

The din. sounds like a third or-cloud. 

Then, all is quiet, tho toachcr is hero. 

It won * t last for long, never foar. 

Why, Aaso has dropped her books and pen. 

But Leroy picks them up again. 

A spitball flios past the teacher's oar; 

Byron sent that one, never roar. 

"Oh", sighs tho teacher, "maybo next year...." 

Then, Shirlie dashes in, late to-day. 

Why couldn't she just stay away? 

Oh, well, bettor late than never. 

Well, did you over seo such a moss all over tho floor? 
Oh, Darlene, don’t spill the ink any more. 

Vinco and Lynne have "loft"- tho room. 

And there follows Henry with tho broom. 

A dotonticn is theirs; now, boys, don’t woop. 

You soo tho gym is theirs to swoop. 

As wo iw-vo provod, actions spook loudor than words. 
Harry is exceptionally glum to-day, 

I wendor what misfortuno passed his way. 

Shirley TJlch is hero to-day 
And she soems to ho very gay. 

Unlike Harry, 

Well, we are almost down the list. 

Now lot me see. Whom havo we missed? 

Why, wo have two Waynes, we romembor 
Wayne Gunning and Wayne Siofker. 

Now, there’s only ono moro. that’s Bobby Graham. 

The toachors- don’t scorn to want to slay him. 

At least there Is one good one in tho class. 



There's one girl loft in Grade IOC, 

Her namo is Donna. Now she must bo 
The last one hero. 

Well, the years go by, and maybo someday. 

Par in the future we’ll look back and say, 
"Wo11, the best year cf my life to me 
Was the year I spent in old IOC."

POEM OP 10D 


Ida, Linda, Marilyn—all Goes, 

Most of thoir teachers I*m sure they do please. 

Ruthy tells jokes, funny or otherwise. 

But here comes Pat with the twinkling groen eyes. 

Also Lynda, always In stylo. 

And Carol with her winning smile. 

There go Shirley, Francoiso, and Joan, 

They do their work without a groan. 

Ruth Anno and Marilyn aro best of frionds. 

And Janet and Verna, are two cute goms. 

Jim Brown, Jim Reeb, Jim Barnett—quite a list. 

But if one wore absent he would surely be missed. 

Dorothy, Judy, Pauline, and Beatrice, 

Moot of their homework they never miss. 

Ken, Doug, and Calvin, aro they a ball] 

While poor Bob does his French in tho hall. 

Although the school days are really quite long; 

They certainly seem shorter with our throe Dons. 

We’ve thought for such a long, long time; 

But for our friends Richard and Rachel wo can’t find a rhyme.

THE MOCK TRIAL 
10E VERSUS MR. GUAY 

On March 27, 1959 at 10:37 a.m. the two headaches, commonly known as 
Louise and Diana, filed suit against Mr. Gnay under the complaint of 
being separated under false pretenses. 

Court was held in the Home Economics Room with Judge Paul Elias 
presiding. The jury of 13, consisting of 5 hoys,* namely. Bill, Roger, 

Eefc, Terry, Harry O’Brien; and 8 giggling girls,* Janet, Connie, Jo-Anne, 
Rcnaud, Ella, Nettie, Shona, and Juanita sauntered in and upon meeting 
the stern eyes of the judge, neatly parked their gum under the kitchen 
counter and settled to rost. 

The court crier, Dave McMurren, pounded the refrigerator with the 
gavel and cried, "Hear yc, hoar yc, heroin lies the charge of Louise and 
Diana, hereinafter referred to as party of the first part, against Mr. 
Gnay, hereinafter referred to as party of the second part, who with 
malicious intent and unjust cause did forcefully separate the two persons 
of the party of the first part on the charge of unfounded rumours and 
alienation of affection. 

The persecuting lawyer, Denise Ouellette, called her first two wit¬ 
nesses in the persons of Mary Lamport and Renee Hoffman, to take the 
stand on the dining-room table, Harry Grona brought forth the Webster 
Hew World Dictionary and upon raising their right hands asked, "Do 
you swear to tell the truth, the o'le truth and nuttin' but the truth so 
help you Webster?" They swore. Their testimony in brief concluded that 
the girls did exchange gossip occasionally but not to the point of dis¬ 
turbing the peace. There was no cross-examination by the dofcnsoless 
lawyer, Ron Watts, thus the girls left their stand escorted down by 
Donni e Jone s. 

The defenseless lawyer brought forth his two witnesses, Ethel 
Hartley and Darlene Breaker, who sat behind the girls and stated that 
they saw their tongues wagging and heard their giggles disturbing the 
DEEP SILENCE of the class tomb. 

On cross-examination by the persecuting lawyer the girls admitted 
that they couldn't sec their tongues wagging from where they.were sitting 
but they assumed by their motions that they were either talking or eating, 
^ the word "Eating" Angc jerked open the refrigerator door but was 
pushed aside by Jim Pickle who had no relish for consuming food in a 
court room. A rapid conclusion followed. 



Any ayxcnaolysa lawyer begun on uoiiuoti jquo liis morcy spuocti to 

jury, stating that Mr. Gnay was doing his duty for tho benefit of the 
c^ass, and quoting Mr. Gnay, said,."It is a far, far better thing that I 
have donu than I ever have done, it is a far, far hotter rest I came to 
than I have ever known." End of a Dickons of a quote. 


After the ballots were placed in the waching machine, tho wringer 
was turned by Elizabuth Dakin, Jo-Anne Martin and Lynn Kettlcwoll. The 
first ballot road "innocont". Hence tho jury rushed out to tho courtroom 
passing Bruce Scott, tho door keeper, who was crooning tho melancholy 
tune "Tom Dooley", 


The judge pronounced that Mr. Gnay was innocent and by direct 
reasoning found the two girls guilty of vagrancy in the first degree. 
Court dismissed as Audroa, Dianne Ennis and Donna rushed for tho cafeteria 
and nearly tripped over Eric, Ed, and Harvey, who had boon relaxing dur¬ 
ing tho trial hours.

11C GIRLS 

Grade 11C girls seemed to be up against so many problems that they 
all decided to ask the advice ;if "Auntie Freeze". Maybe you have tho 
same problems. If so, road "Dear Auntie Freeze" and you will find ycur 
answers. 

Dear Auntie Frcezo: 

Please help usj Our problem concerns a certain toachor who is con¬ 
tinually banging a throe-foot rule ;n our desks and scaring two inches 
off our life each time. Wc can't afford to lose many more inches and 
time is running short. Help usj 

Ruby and Carolyn 

Dear Ruby and Carolyn: 

By the sound of this teacher, he gives me the impression of being a 
Math Toachor. I am glad yu wrote because I know many other unfortunate 
individuals are plagued with this samo problem; so I suggest y u Join 
with the "rebels" or else at one of his mild moments, up and scare him 
yourself. 


Dear Auntie Freeze: 

We would like to know if a method has boon found of chewing gum in 
school and enjoying it without being caught by a certain English teacher 
whose initials are L. F. H. and who gives you an unknown and undesired 
punishment if you arc unfortunate enough to bo caught at it throe times 


Ann and Donna 


Dear Ann and Donna: 

. - If 1 werG y° u > 1 would give this''chewing gum fiend* a package of 
/ngloy’s spearmont gum and also give him a free demonstration of how 
to chow the stuff--thcn maybe ho will agreo how good it is. If this 
doesn't work, then maybe you had better find another form of entertain- 
ment during English class. 


Dear Auntie Freeze: 

Wo want a fool-proof way of getting revenge on fellow oupils who 
tease us about certain individuals when wo simply loath these'certain 
individuals. Would you ploase suggest something? 

Sophie, Mary Ann and Carol T. 

Dear Sophie, Mary Arm and Carol T.: 

This sort of thing is quito common inside our brick-covcrod walls. 
Most people retort with cutting remarks or just laugh it off--if thoso 
don't wo no, I think it may be wise to consult a real expert on such 
problems. —- 


Dear Auntie Freeze: 

What do you do with thoso awful teachers who won't lot you leave 
the room to fix your hair and face when it is in dire need of repairs? 
Please give us some suggestions. 

Kathy and Carol H. 


Dear Kathy and Carol H.: 

In my opinion, thoso teachers are positively horrid not to allow 
ou to bo excused. I would certainly fix their position by coming to 
school some morning minus your make-up and your hair in curlers. ’That 
will fix 'omj 


Dear Auntie Freeze: 

We find it very hard to refrain from laughing during Physics class 
and that whito-coatod toacher of Physics" expects wonders in those 
unanswerable problems: but what he doesn't know is that wo don't under- • 
stand a thing. Do you think that he knows that wc don't know what's 
going on? 


Dianne and Carol U. 


Dear Dianne and Carol U.: 

I don't think that he knows that you don't know what i.t's all 
about, and I think it would be wise to let him know that you don't know 
what it's all about. It is quite evident that other thoughts arc tho 
masters of your minds. 



Al. 

Our one girl loft is Rone, who has an individual problem and has 
confided in Auntie Freeze, She is seeking for a solution. It seems 
there is an "older man" on her thoughts, and this "oldor man" doesn't 
soom to be aware of our Rone, or at least he hasn't let her know. 

Probably, this "guy" will vanish from her thoughts soon, but she doesn't 
think so, I can't find any solution, so Rene and I are open to suggest¬ 
ions.

11 D 

Fifteen minutes before departure twenty—nine crew members aro ushored 
to their appointed scats by Squadron Commander Montcith, until the count¬ 
down is completed. After listening intently to our instructions, we are 
prepared for take-off, but Bruco and George dopant, because they aro too 
terrified to remain with us. 

5>-i4-~3 _ 2-l —The rod light flashes. 1 Blasting into our course we 
safely arrive at our first landing point, Satellite 23, where wo are 
greeted by Comrade Sullivan, who is continuously irritated by John's 
mischievous a.cts. We store, up on space knovlodgo, and resume our 
flight into the unknown space (E. D, H. S.). 

Proceeding on, our second destination is in view; the female mombors 
advance to Pilot Chouinard and the male mombors advance to Co-Pilot 
Langford, who try to build up our physical fitness, tnd despite Liz's 
swollen ankle and Gary W's, shortness, they still put forth their best 
offorts. 

While approaching our third destination, Bernard and Elaino are in 
front, prepared to descend and assist Captain Harrow, and dream up ways 
of improving our lesson. Gloria, B..v, and Mabolnnn find it hard to 
decipher our code of position. Kathleen has been voted our most talka¬ 
tive crew member. 

Our Captain boards and remains with us until our next landing. 

Planet 32. Hero we are versed in triangles, squares, and circles. Bill, 
snooping in the front seat, is jarred from his slumber by the Captain 
because his snoozing was disturbing our crew. Cathy M., Carolyn, and 
Kenlyn are highly skilled, and do well in this course. Our mission 
accomplishod, we continue on our adventure. 

Wo are off again, this time in two air ships; some destined to 
interview Navigator Findlay, and the remainder to question Gunner 
Latimer. Wc have each taken on a strange crow to join us for this ex¬ 
pedition, but they remain on Sputniks 19 and 21. Lenn, who is very 
mischievous, again (as usual) has his seat taken from beneath him by our 
Land Navigator, who finds this a good solution for our usual problem of 
a shortage of seats in the female section. In this navigation, Qhcryl 
and Charlene aro tops as usual. Thu.se two seem to be magnetic where 
instructions are concerned. 

Our travels now load us again to Satellite 23, where Stewardess 
Kilpatrick endeavours, with the help (?) of Gary and Bob, to improve our 
speech-making capacities. While all are listening attentively to 
speeches, and Tom and Kay are intently listening to each other, Ted and 
Karl are hastily catching up on yesterday's homework. 



Our seventh stop is one that has boon, greatly awaited by all. In a 
confused mess we hurl out the exit because our appetites have grown with 
our knowledge. 

After storing up on necessities, we proceed to English lessons, 
where Instructor Hutton is always on guard to make sure that Ca.thy Wallace 
does not infringe upon our space regulations regarding chewing gum, in 
which she frequently indulges. While a few of our crew members aro find¬ 
ing the briefings of our English composites difficult, Margaret Ann and 
Caren breeze along with a good understanding of it. 

Upon the landing at our final destination, we are once again greeted 
by Squadron Commander Montoith, who, we hear, Is looking for a new kind 
of hair tonic or an inexpensive toupoe. But Rone and Jeannette are doing 
their best to solve the CommanderTs problem by asking all the girls of 
the crew for a donation of hair, while Gail seems to be working on a 
certain male member {I wonder who?) of another crew. 

After gaining in knowledge of various subjects, and when the last 
signal Is given, our crew happily spparates to rejoin earth people and 
enjoy life once again.

Let your imagination wandor to the far-off land of mysterious Tibet. 
At the outpost of Mount Reverest the thirty-four students of HE assem-. 
bled and prepared ourselves for tho gruelling climb to the top of the 
monstrous moniitain. We were all roped together and packsacks were 
strapped on our backs. The time was at hand when we had to gather our 
strength and courage to begin the ascent. So, with picks in hands, the 
long, narrow line began to climb upwards. 

In tho lead, we had Irene Namcspetra, a valiant student who was pre¬ 
pared to meet every twist and turn of the rocky precipice. Following her, 
were Shirley Wambeke and Fred Sweet, crouching low in tho biting cold. 
This trip was capable of coping with and of overcoming all obstacles whick 
might confront them.

Next in lino wore our champion athletes: Jim Ellis, an ardent hockey 
fan.; Michaol Pattorson, our football star; who both koop up the athletic 
standards of our class; our Irish girl, Betty Gregg; blushing Evolyn 
Eyraud; and comical Karon Rosnovcn. You will moot the rest of our crow 
later. 

After climbing half a mile, we were confronted with a hugo band of 
forocious natives who spoko a vory confusing language called Frenclatin. 
Luckily, our French whiz, Narcissc St. Donis, and our Latin master, Tom 
Tully, wore ablo to translate these strange utterings. They wanted to 
steal oil of our knowledge which we had accumulated over the years. Wo 
of HE wore not dismayed because wo had our strong Frod Green ar.d George 
Zwick along with the rest of our husky musclo men to protect us. After 
a short battlo, our foes were conquered. Later, the authorities appre¬ 
hended thorn and thoy were forced to serve ten years in the Essex House 
of Correction. 

On pushed the Essex squad up the steepest slopes and ovor the iciest 
terrains—'until a terrible accident occurredj Sharon Cline, Verna Smith, 
Carol Hill, and Julio-itnne Danckaort wore caught in the midst of a crush¬ 
ing avalanche. Only the ropes to which they were tied saved them. It 
was a shocking experience for everyone and we proceeded moro carefully 
afterwards. But fate seemed to be against our expedition. We had pro¬ 
ceeded a thousand foet when we heard a blood-curdling cry. Three of our 
companions, Michaol O'Noil, Nancy Colenutt, and Kathy Tapping had fallen 
down the slippery slopes into a 3mall valley below. It was called 
Shangri-La, and there our friends remained until wo picked them up on 
tho way baokjgazing at the "Lost Horizon". 

Since night was approaching, wc docided to pitch camp. Stuart Quick, 
sufforing from tho upper atmosphere, was put into an oxygon tent and given 
a transfusion by Richard Barkosky, one of our Rod Cross representatives. 

Fearing nothing (well, practically nothing), wo decided to push on¬ 
ward tho next day. The more adventuresome and carefroe of our group, 

Diano Shaw, Catherine Wass, Wayne Molocho, and Bonnie Fowler, equipped 
thoms.olvos with most of our food supply and started back down the moun¬ 
tain on a difforent route. 

JanGt Eoyle, Carolyn Thompson, and Mary Donkor wero alarmed by the 
appearance of monstrous footprints near our campsite and called the rest 
of us. Carol Chambers decided at once that they were tracks of an abomin¬ 
able snowman. Brave Peter Halford set out to follow tho tracks with 
Rosalyn Ganderton, David Douoy, and Jana Coutts, who had her camera and 
wanted to obtain a picture of the creature to take back to her art class. 



tor following t ic tracks all da,y, they reached the ‘'snowman J s' 1 

*?Z Sorge. On entering this, we found him laughing and 
sinking with the other members of our group who were formerly trapped in 
the snowslide. The abominable snowman said that he had never had such 
lun, so we too<c him back to our camp and prepared to ascend the remain¬ 
ing one tnousand feet to the summit of the gigantic mountain. 

It ^ W f-L at th ^ 3 crucial Point that Pat Bellamy stubbornly refused 

But finally, after much pleading and coaxing, the relent- 
ed and said she would go to the top with the rest of us. 

Now for the final stretch. The biting cold froze our digits, wind 
faces and with less oxygen in those altitudes, it was very 
iilicalt to^breathe. Yet after five hours of pure torture, the llE's 
(what was left of us) reached the peak of Mount Reverest. It was a 
moment to remember. We were so proud of the accomplishment that our 
sic^s hurt. iii ter planting the Canadian flag and singing "God Save the 
Queen , our victorious party descended the mountain without a mishap 
picking up the lost and wounded on the way. * 

This year, we have a great "mountain" to climb. Passing grade 
eleven .or failing depends entirely on ourselves. We must study hard 
to achieve our goal in order that our "Mount Reverest" may be conquered.

All guards raised their right hand (Mr. Findlay aid Mrs. Annett 
crossed their fingers) and repeated it after him. 

"Wo arc gathered hero on this fateful occasion to discuss and en¬ 
deavour to solve the problems of Grade 13." 


, \ n ^- v G here a list of complaints," ho continued, unwinding the 

sixty foot cx brown mo at-wrapping paper n which ROI! had managed to got 
a discount for his classmates. 


, i’irst item listed stems from cno of the major campaign issues 
which stimulated wide interest in this year's Student Council elections. 
The flies! 


"DOi'CIA 3ARK0SKY claims they hinder hor vision. GAYLE GEDDES is 
afraid they're going to spread typhoid, but SYBREN complains that they 
keep him awake in English class. 

"Most of those peplo sound like crack pots," said the warden, 
but this final problom is one worth considering." 

Miss Koeyne, I fool that it is your duty to see that those hard¬ 
working Upper School students got their rost. Therefore I propose that 
we spray Room 33 regularly with Fly-Tox, (Maybe wo can get a discount 
on that too.) If it doesn't kill the flies, it will at least knock out 
the students." 

"And I move that wo pipe lullabies into the room," said Mr. Gillios. 

All those in favour? 

"Aye!", shouted Captain Gillies. 


• Unanimous. 

"Now that this has boon settled, I have a little surprise for every¬ 
one, " announced Mrs. Foster. "I'm going to treat you all to some cookies. 

"What a rolief t got rid of them," she groaned to hersalf. "I 
can't persuade my husband or pupils to cat thorn .and the cat is still 
sick from the last." 

"Cost bon!" said Miss Konnody. (Free translation: Whore can I 
get rid of it?) 

"Cost saveuroux," said Miss Chouinard. (Tr. - Who substituted 
sand for flour?) 


"C ’cst lo meiHour petit gateau quo j'aio jamais mangt/," said Hiss 
Davidson. (Tr. - AGAHH!) 

11 Or dor, order!" shouted the warden. "We have mro complaints to 
look int'." 

"GARY - GURBIN and GREG JOHNSTON wi 3 h the sell > 1 would provide more 
Science Fiction b ks (eg. "I was a Tonnage Rattlesnake") in order to 
pursue their chosen careers." 

"Horo's a boy with a suggestion: RUDY DERKSEA has solved the mystery 
of whether or not tho poet of a controversial sonnet was optimistic or 
pessimistic. NeitherJ ho was just disgusted. That's why he quit after 
fourteen linos." 

"JEAN MACDONALD has partly solved her largo problem of to majiy 
spares by joining Special Commercial in Typing and Shorthand. Only 
trouble is now she has to*' many subjects." 

"All LEONARD TURTOH wants is life, liberty, and pursuit of vrMtion 
(especially a cute little brunette at Patterson). 

"The whole class fools it has a problem with RICHARD CARDER and his 
corny brand of wit." 

"I resent that!" interrupted Mr. Sotoros. "I don't think anybody 
tolls "cornier" j kos than I do and I have f urtcon botany students 
who'11 prove it." 

"Well, hero are tw - shot puts," offered Mr. Langford. "You can 
fight it out between you." 

"Here’s an thor complaint," said the Warden. "BESSIE TURNER wl&os 
that Hiss Latimer wouldn't take *suaij delight in the s-und of cracking 
bones. It reminds her that next year she will be in training and she 
wants only pleasant memories of dead bodies." 

"Karon Baltzor would like a flck of young victims on which to prac¬ 
tise the barbaric teaching moth ds which she feels have been inflicted 
on Jior." 

"CLEM GAGNON wuld like t; protest against tho classmates who insist 
on congratulating him on his lucky choice after a c uplo days' absence." 

"JEAN TULLY would appraciato a rovision of tho rules which forbid a 
student to play basketball unless she passes at least one subject. Jean 
is simply pining away for this lost love f hors." ' 

"The final request is from the C. F. I. F. ?. who would like a 
ho 'la-hc p shop right on tho school grounds so they wouldn't have to’ 
travel all ever tho country looking for the things." * 

"Good grief! They're tho ones wh should be locked up in this 
escape-proof cell, n't us. I move the mooting be adjourned," 3 aid Mr. 
Langford. (Don't forget tho Bermuda Shorts!)

Kero is a clue to the activities of some of our ;, Class of '59' 1 ten 
years from now along with a few descriptions to help you recognize them. 

BEV--will’ still be the beautiful ghost with that ''Continental Look''. 

MARY ANNE--will be carrying bubble gum—a supply for Mr. Sullivan. 

RALPH POSltA—will either still be globe-trotting or quizmaster on the 
show entitled ‘'Beat Mr. Harrow". 

GARY COOPER—will be the only Santa Claus in the country coaching basket¬ 
ball. 

RON '.TATT—will light the way with a candle while he continues trying to 
pass Grade 13. 

URSULA LEBLANC--will be looking for a French hospital or one that gives 

preference to French-speaking lab technologists. 

MURRAY TRIMBLE and JOHN THOMAS—will be wearing signs with their names 
printed in large letters just for Mr. Soteros’ benefit. 

FRED--will be rewriting Ha'lie t, since he entirely disagrees with 
Shakespeare's version. 

SHANNON--will be giving him pointers. Having seen the play four times. 

and studied it for three years he considers himself an authority. 

KELVIN MILLS—when not designing small garages for Gary Wright's large 

cars, will spend his spare time counting holes in the squares 
in the ceiling. 

ANN-_will still be arguing with 'Yours truly' about the defects in the 

American system of education. 

MARILYN K2LLINGT0N--because she can't quite decide between a career in 

music and nursing^, will be treating her patients on a 
piano bench. 

GONNA LITTLE—will have a flock of little red-heads in tow. 


ROGER CRANE recruited a largo number of his classmates to join the rebel 
forces in Cuba (now that it's over). Next fall,: diplomas in haiid, wc will 
march to this poor backward country and set its psychocoramic (courtesy 
of Roger) government to rights. 

JIM DOUGLAS' friends wonder where he gets his pull. Honour Promotion four 
years straight and practically a permanent seat in the Jr. Rod Cross. 

DON PETTYPIECE is the boy to avoid when he's carrying a gun. This year he 
became the first student in the school's history to record a perfect rifle 

score. 

GABY WRIGHT is taking advantage of his half-load of subjects this year to 
join every organization going and is President of three oj. tnem— -Key Club, 
Philharmonic Society, and Essex and District Teen Club. Oh yos, and 
treasurer of the Continental Customs.

•JANE and MURRAY each have $50 to prove their academic success and account 
for their sudden popularity. (Just kidding.) 

BARB ZAKOW has discovered that ketchup (or was it blood?) makes H amlet 
more digcstable. 

MARY MCLENNAN has partially succeeded in persuading Bev that the conti¬ 
nental look is to be avoided by setting a good example. As the only 
girl attending Western next year, she is automatically our arch-enemy. 

VERN REDMOND has succeeded admirably in concealing his past. V/onder 
why? 

JANE DSGROOT deserves a medal for the enthusiasm with which she attacks 
the dissection of worms, frogs, fish, etc. It is popular opinion that 
Jane should be directing her talents toward a career in surgery.

GETTING INTO MISCHIEF 

..ro you talented enough to get into mischief? If you are not, you 
will have to cultivate your mind. With hour? of long study, you may 
eventually become an expert. 

Your first question may be, ”How do I cultivate my mind?” The 
answer is simple, my fri'end, just re-lax and concentrate. . k fter the 
teacher goes by and you can slouch down in your seat again, ask yourself 
why she is walking up that aisle. The simple answer is found in the 
paper aeroplane you are hiding under your desk. Why not throw it at 
Bob who is at the other side of the room? If you don't get some excite¬ 
ment out of that, try it again. 

Tacks are necessary as a part of developing your mind. Try setting 
a tack on the teacher s chair. This always gets a bang, especially from 
a slim teacher. Just'because it doesn’t work on, shall we say, pleasantly 
plump teachers don’t give up, just try a longer tack.
